The shortest month of the year still has plenty of room for rally, and its starting off with a bang!
Local competitors Mal Swann and Tim Dine are presently in Maniwaki, Quebec for Rallye Perce-Neige Maniwaki where they’ll be contesting the snow and ice stages in both the National and the East Coast Rally Championship series! Also of local connection keep an eye out for local Halfax ex-pat and Rally Photographer Extraordinaire Peter MacDonald of CDNRally.com as he competes in his first CRC event with experienced Co-driver Ferdinand Trauttsmansdorff.
Check out all the results as they’re updated on Saturday on RallyScoring.com and for updates on the Rallye Perce Neige Facebook group! They’ve already started posting some great photos from recce and tech. I’ll try to keep the Rally East Facebook group updated with everything I find out as well!
For those who can’t make it to the snowy stages of Quebec there’s rally action right here at home with Round 5 of the Bluenose Autosport Club RallyCross Championsip! After our record decimating entry field at the last event we return to Scotia Speed World for another round of sideways action. Conditions are sure to be very different this time with warm weather and rain all week ensuring a softer surface.
Ride along with Steve Quigley in his fully prepped Open 4WD Class RallyCar at the last event:
